Aryan Khan Drug case: The Bombay High Court ordered the release of Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha in the Mumbai cruise drugs case on Thursday. The accused are currently being held in Arthur Road Jail.
Since his arrest by the Narcotics Control Bureau in a narcotics bust case, Aryan Khan has been fighting for bail. The judgment was issued today by the Bombay High Court, which has been hearing Khan’s bail application for three days.
Shah Rukh Khan’s son had requested for bail several times, but it had been denied by a session court. His lawyers then took his bail application to the Bombay High Court. His bail hearing was scheduled for Monday, but it was postponed until today.
Due to pending paperwork and processes, Aryan Khan will be released from prison on Friday.
The NCB’s ASG Anil Singh presented his case to the judge on Thursday, which was a highlight of the session.
“My claim is that he was discovered in possession. He had ties to narcotics traffickers. It was an amount that could be sold commercially. As a result, we used the numbers 28 and 29. It was only for four hours, and they were aware of the circumstances, therefore it couldn’t have been an unlawful detention. It’s difficult to prove a conspiracy. The only one who knows how they conspired is the conspirator. I’ll leave it up to the court’s conscience.”
“He was found in possession, according to my argument. He had ties to narcotics traffickers. It was an amount that would be sold commercially. As a result, 28 and 29 were invoked. It was only for four hours, and they were aware of the grounds, so it couldn’t have been an illegal detention. It’s tough to prove a conspiracy. The only person who knows how they conspired is the conspirator himself. I’ll leave it up to the judge’s discretion.”
According to a report by Bar & Bench, the Bombay High Court has granted Aryan Khan bail after several rejections. Tomorrow, a detailed order will be issued, including the bail terms. During the court, NCB’s lawyer, Anil Singh, argued that Aryan is a regular drug user, and he presented proof to support his assertion. “We have argued about conscious possession,” he added. If two persons are present and one of them is aware of the other’s drug possession and usage, the first person is in conscious possession.”
